…and proudly displays its past in all its bumps and knots. Every pair of wooden Hout Couture sunglasses bears these unique patterns and grains, each as individual as those who choose to wear them.

‘Hout’, meaning ‘wood’ in Afrikaans, is an essential element to our sunglasses which are manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa.

Skilled workmanship of the wooden frames ensures that they are a breathable, lightweight and durable alternative to plastic (not to mention friendlier to the earth). Polarized lenses come standard. Premium Carl Zeiss lenses are now available too.

For each pair of wooden sunglasses sold, an indigenous or fruit tree will be planted through Eco-Schools projects in South Africa.

See what eternal summer looks like through Hout Couture lenses…
